Thoughts & Poetry

Free Man (At Last)

This is my last entry for my Forgotten Poetries project. This one, unlike my previous entries, is extremely special. I wrote this during the first weeks that my husband and I were going out. This one is for all the poets and sad alcoholics who found redemption. 

I’m a free man now
I no longer need to take pills
Or down bottles to make me feel
No numbing, I’m all feeling
Which is crazy
I know things are just starting
You make me high on something
I’ve never tried before
Feels like I’m floating
But my feet feels the shore
May God bless this new found home
I found in your arms
I feel like I have grown
Like a part of my life I have not known

 

 

A corporate tough cookie with the soul of a gypsy. Professional bathroom singer. Teacher. Poet. A light-eyed dreamer who nitpicks for a living as she waits for redamancy.
